Hailing from Oakland, California, MACHINE HEAD are one of the biggest names in Metal. Every worthwhile musical subculture needs its heroes and MACHINE HEAD have been just that for the past 20 years. Starting with the earth-shattering prescience of 1994's “Burn My Eyes” and continuing up to 2014's “Bloodstone & Diamonds”, they have constantly redefined the very notion of heaviness and are one of the few in modern times that can boast an unbreakable connection with the hearts and minds of the metal faithful.
Now MACHINE H EAD are bringing their phenomenal live performance to Australia & New Zealand on a headline run Down Under!
MACHINE HEAD are a band operating at the absolute peak of their collective powers, as exemplified by their new album “Bloodstone & Diamonds” debuting at #10 in the ARIA Charts (a phenomenal achievement for a metal band) and #38 in the NZ Charts.
MACHINE HEAD shows are the next level of live experience. Front-man Robb Flynn is one of the most charismatic front-men in the world and they have towered above the competition with a ruthless determination and dedication to the cause for 20 years!
If you're not sure these guys mean business, here's a quote from Robb himself... "Our first time headlining in Australia since 2010, and our first time headlining in New Zealand EVER!! To say that we are fucking STOKED beyond belief would be the understatement of the year!!!! We cannot wait to plunder your cities into the dust Head Cases!!!!”
A MACHINE HEAD live show is as much about the crowd as much as it is about the band. MACHINE HEAD do not just perform and leave - you're in for highly energetic show, with bodies flying everywhere! Prepare yourselves to be bludgeoned by a wall of sound and leave the venue with ears ringing, voice boxes shredded and bodies crushed. The Blood, The Sweat, The Beers!
The return of the mighty MACHINE HEAD to Australia, their first headline tour since 2010, and their first NZ headlining tour ever, is sure to be a memorable experience with them playing some intimate venues so they will be up close and in your face! Head Cases, you do not want to miss this one!
